Brittany Farms, far and away the sport’s leading breeder in percentage of million-dollar winners from foals bred, now has 44 to its credit after the recent addition of two more seven-figure earners.
Joining the list last year was a horse everyone knows, two-time Dan Patch Champion and back-to-back Breeders Crown Champion Perfect Sting p,3,1:48.1 ($1,808,147), who’s now moved on to his “second career” as a promising young stallion at Deo Volente Farms
in New Jersey. His initial book became full and closed simultaneous with the announcement that he was going to stud.
But not all of the farm's millionaires are horses that are in the spotlight; the kind that are featured on the Hall Of Fame
After a full data report was provided by the U.S. Trotting Association
last week, it was learned that the hard-hitting racehorse Escape The News p,4,1:48.4 ($1,004,087) had also climbed onto our Millionaires Row — and he did it the hard way.
From a career that spanned 12 seasons of racing, Escape The News went from a 2-year-old Lexington Grand Circuit stakes winner and classics competitor to an open-quality pacer who recorded 50 career victories and never lost his competitive edge.
That longevity is a testament to the solid foundation every Brittany-bred horse receives. Quite simply, they’re bred and raised for the rigors of racing!
A scan of Brittany-bred millionaires shows several others who continue to move up the ladder as they continue to race. Those include Breeders Crown Champion American History p,3,1:47 ($1,315,024), who finished second just last week in a leg of the MGM-Borgata FFA Pacing Series at Yonkers.
As you begin your yearling evaluations this fall, keep in mind that Brittany has not only been the leading farm in average earnings per starter for the past four years… it is also the farm that gives customers the best chance to buy a future million-dollar winner.
